Former Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is considering running for former Minnesota Senator Al Franken's seat. In a recent interview on "The Jim Bakker Show," Bachmann claimed people have been urging her to run, but she questioned whether she should be the one to carry her principles into the Senate. Bachmann represented Minnesota in the House from 2007 to 2015.
She launched an unsuccessful bid for the GOP presidential nomination in the 2012 election.
